We do differential remanufacturing, modifications and rebuilds

Damage to differentials will happen over time. Regular wear and tear and other sources are types of damage that will mean that rebuilding or remanufacturing your differential will be useful to you. These options are also often cheaper than replacing the differential itself. It also is an effective way to lengthen the life of your car. Remanufacturing and rebuilding a differential differ in some ways. Rebuilding the differential will focus on repairing as many parts as possible and then replacing parts as needed. Remanufacturing is then the process that will replace the worn-out or damaged parts after fully inspecting the differential. Our team at HRA is also able to modify differentials for any purpose you may need. For example, if you need to modify a differential so it works better while off-roading, we can help you.

How can you tell if your axle is damaged?

Damage to your vehicle could come from any source and how that damage will affect your axle or some other component can be hard to tell. If you aren’t sure what part has been impaired and if it is your axle we will go over some ways in this section. You could have driven over a pothole or gone over a large bump with a heavy load in the car. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, take your vehicle to a mechanic to prevent the damage from getting worse.

  • Noise – The noise from axle damage will often be generated from gears no longer meshing together properly. This causes the gears to grind or knock against each other while you drive. The axle just needs to get a dent or a bend for this to happen.
  • Vibrations – A strong vibration will be felt when driving your vehicle from the axle damage. The feeling can also feel more intense as you turn the steering wheel, also. 
  • Leaks – You may see fluids leaking from the axle. This is caused by a crack or a dent in an axle. This is a cause for concern because the axle may no longer be properly lubricated.
